regional representatives

To support local groups of labyrinth lovers, we have created the roles of regional representatives. If you have a group of people around you who love labyrinths and want to hold events, have training or come to our Gatherings, you may be interested in becoming a member and taking on a regional representative role. Please read this document about what the purposes of the regional representatives are, and then get in contact with us to let us know you're interested. The 'email us' link in the orange box at the bottom of the page is best.

To see where labyrinths are located across Australia, please view our interactive map, and feel free to send us details of your own labyrinths if they aren't already up there.

role description

The commitment is minimal. Just a small amount of time each month yields great benefits for the region served. Regional Representatives may spend 1-3 hours per month (or more if they wish!) participating in labyrinth related work. For more information, contact admin@aln.org.au.

We encourage you to become familiar with our website, connect with members and other labyrinth enthusiasts in your region, and send us stories for our newsletter. You are warmly welcome to attend ALN activities, and we can also advertise your local labyrinth activities to our members. Brief training and ongoing resources are provided, including our quarterly e-Newsletter Labyrinths Matter, access to our Zoom video-conferencing for meetings, and a closed Regional Reps Facebook group.


purposes of regional representatives

1. Encouraging the use of the labyrinth as a sanctuary for contemplation, and prayer, a symbol of wholeness, integration, as a metaphor for the journey through life, and to celebrate the seasons.

2. Educating the public about the personal and communal benefits of labyrinth walking; and about the use of the labyrinth as a holistic tool for self-care.


3. Encouraging opportunities for the public to experience labyrinth walking by creating/ holding/ promoting labyrinth events on World Labyrinth Day, solstice/ equinox, and seasonal celebrations.

4. Updating existing labyrinth listings on the Labyrinth Locator , adding new listings and developing regional awareness of the labyrinth trails visible on the Locator. This is an important function for building labyrinth awareness and promoting local and regional events.

5. Skills development in labyrinth facilitation, and labyrinth construction. Participation in our training opportunities will further your role as a regional representative of the ALN.

6. Development of your labyrinth work in your community, linking with other Regional Representatives to create our Australian Labyrinth Network at a grass-roots level.

Our region hosts regular Labyrinth workshops , "Docent " / local Labyrinth facilitation training and Labyrinth events. These events include World Labyrinth Day, New Year's Eve, NAIDOC week and other times of community celebration and reflection. Our local members include people whose passions embrace Prison Labyrinth Ministry and facilitating Labyrinth practice in schools, local community venues and churches .

Whilst our gatherings and physical walks are currently "on hold" due to the Pandemic , we regularly distribute "virtual walk" reflections for private and family walks (and also use finger labyrinths).

Please contact us if you would wish to receive updates of local happenings, labyrinth events and activities. Most events are free and folks of all levels of experience and being of "all faiths and none" are assured of a warm welcome :)
